STROUD TOWNSHIP – Fresh flowers, bright colors, all blooming just in time for Easter weekend. But overnight frosts the past few nights have been freezing some of these buds near Stroudsburg.
“Well, we had to cover everything you know, and we watered it before it started to frost. We cover them every night,” said flower tent employee Jennifer Rusch.
Rusch helps run a flower tent just off Route 611 and says tents, blankets and a propane heater have helped fight back against the cold nights.
Customers say they are pleased with the selection even after a couple of nights of 20 degree temperatures.
“Yeah, I’m surprised they have what they have here. They have a nice little selection,” said Christopher Smith of Stroudsburg.
Smith says he stopped in for Easter plants for his family, but his garden at home hasn’t been faring as well.
